Good Week, Bad Week 20/05/12…

Good Week

Ed Miliband- The Labour leader has had a good week, mainly due to his party’s poll ratings which are consistently better than the Tories by around ten percentage points. Miliband is also now ahead of Cameron in leadership ratings across the polling companies. The only real worry for Miliband short term is that the Coalition somehow regains the initiative politically and his poll leads evaporate quickly, proving that they were soft. Personally I cannot see this happening before the Summer but it still is a distinct possibility.

Nick Clegg- The Deputy Prime Minister had his usual low key week this week with his only highlight being his welcoming of the Olympic Flame to Britain from Greece.

Vince Cable- Cable this week secured many jobs this week by negotiating a deal with General Motors to  build the new Astra at Ellesmere Port. More actions like this could secure his own role within the Cabinet.

Boris Johnson- The Mayor of London looked at home in Greece this week as he collected the Olympic Flame with Sebastian Coe and (Sir) David Beckham.

Bad Week

David Cameron- The Prime Minister has had yet another poor week as the Budget hangover continues for the Coalition. Cameron has two choices going forward short term, he can either be bold justifying his policies in the broadcast media or he can simply take it “easy” on policy until after the Summer recess. With a General Election three years away one suspects he will choose the latter option.

Ron Paul- Paul this week suspended his GOP Nomination campaign effectively making Mitt Romney the Republican candidate for President in 2012.
